Appliances & Bulk Waste

Supplemental Bulk Waste Service
April 20-May 17, 2020

To assist with an increased demand for bulk waste services, the City of Greenville will be providing bulk collection containers in convenient neighborhood locations beginning on Monday, April 20. Residents will be allowed to drop off bulk items daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., through May 17.

This service is intended for city residents only, and will be monitored. Contractors also are prohibited. Residents are asked to maintain social distance by using the container one person at a time and remaining in their vehicle until they reach the front of the line.

All items must fit inside the container. Accepted items include: furniture, paint cans (filled with sand or litter to absorb liquid), dirt, rock, rubble, brick, block, concrete, wooden planks, boards, treated wood and yard waste (greater than six-feet long or six inches in diameter). The following items will not be accepted: household garbage, recyclables, hazardous building material, construction material and chemicals. City public works officials remind residents that regular curbside pickup of bulk waste will continue, but as always is limited to two items. Curbside yard waste collection also continues but is limited to items less than six-feet long or six inches in diameter.

Questions about collection services may be directed to Public Works at 864-467-4345.

Residents are encouraged find the location of a container nearest their home by visiting the City’s online, interactive bulk waste drop-off map.
